Community Ambassadors Sought for Loudoun Seniors

Loudoun County Seal Color

Seventeen additional Loudoun residents have stepped up to advocate for seniors since the Loudoun County Commission on Aging (COA) launched its Community Ambassador Program in June 2014. The program represents a partnership among county service organizations, volunteers, and local law enforcement, as a three-part (TRIAD) team to promote programs that enhance the health and safety of Loudoun’s seniors.

TRIAD ambassadors solicit feedback and disseminate educational information in senior living communities or groups. Scams and crimes targeting seniors, fraud, and health care are critical areas for which the growing population of seniors needs assistance and resources. Often, help is needed to navigate the administrative layers that cause delays when searching for answers. Community ambassadors can provide resources to seniors for issues including caregiving, suspicious calls, nutritional assistance, affordable prescription plans, fire alarms, battery checks, and transportation. … Continue Reading

York Will Not Seek Re-election

January 8, 2015 by Blue Ridge Leader Elections, Government, Loudoun County, News Be the first to comment
Scott Yorkforweb12

Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Chairman Scott York (R-At Large) announced Wednesday during a county Board of Supervisors meeting that he will not seek a fifth term in office this November. York had previously announced late last year that he did plan to seek re-election.

York, who commenced his service first as a planning commissioner, then as Sterling District Supervisor, has led the county board for 15 years as chairman. Over the years he has run for office as a Republican, then as an Independent for one four year term, returning to run again as a Republican.

Leesburg attorney Charles King announced earlier this week that he would be seeking the Republican nomination for Chairman of the Board, presenting York with the prospect of a primary challenge. King recently represented Loudoun County Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R- Sterling) in a legal challenge stemming from a former employee’s allegations of misuse of office.

How People Who Love To Tinker, Invent And Dream Are Shaking Up Our Economic And Social Landscape

Look up his Linkedin profile and you’ll see that Loudouner Patrick Scannell describes himself as a “Maker, Technology Strategist, Product Innovator” in the Washington, DC area.

The technology and innovation part of Scannell’s Linkedin calling card certainly makes sense for the resident of county that is home to the Dulles Technology Corridor – “The Silicon Valley of the East.” It is likewise compatible with a place that has a long history of agricultural innovation, and works closely with research powerhouses such as Virginia Tech.

But, what exactly is a “maker” – the curious third leg of how Scannell describes himself on Linkedin’s professional networking website? And, what is that term’s relevance to a county so rich in history and all of the things that happened before. A county that many see as a place where one can leave the worst of the modern world behind and retreat back in time, happy to go home to that every night? … Continue Reading

Community Outraged at Lack of Transparency and Being Shut Out of The Late Night Process

It was a long night at the Board of Supervisors’ September public hearing, which did not end until after midnight. Last up on the 17 item agenda was the question of Loudoun Water’s proposal to construct two 189-foot, one million gallon water towers along side narrow, unpaved Red Hill Road. Despite repeated requests from road residents and others that the board over rule the planning commission’s July vote granting Loudoun Water a commission permit for its towers, a majority of the supervisors affirmed the planning commission’s decision. … Continue Reading
